The W&J Mathematics Department is located in Old Main.


The Department of Mathematics offers individualized learning for students through an innovative curriculum that culminates in independent research projects. Students who major or minor in mathematics are prepared to pursue graduate study in mathematics and/or professional careers in education, business, actuarial science, and related fields.

The department also provides courses that support programs in the physical, biological, social, and informational sciences, introducing students to fundamental concepts in computation, statistics, and applied calculus.

For those pursuing a career in education, the curriculum supports the NCTM (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics) standards and meets the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's requirements for teaching certification.

The Department of Mathematics offers a major and a minor. A major in mathematics requires 10 courses and a minor requires six. Courses for majors and minors are determined from a list approved by the mathematics faculty. Related areas of study include the Child Development and Education major and the Teacher Certification program, as well as the 3-2 Engineering Program. Additional course information is available in the W&J College Catalog.
